ROBOTARIUM: The Centre for Excellence in Robotics at Edinburgh
We have been awarded an EPSRC infrastructure grant totaling £6.1M to create a cutting edge Robotics Centre in Edinburgh, in collaboration with Heriot-Watt University. Professor Sethu Vijayakumar will lead the UoE efforts, which will see state of the art robotics infrastructure including the NASA-UoE Valkyrie Humanoid Platform, the PR2 robot, the Baxter bimanual manipulation platform, rehabilitation exoskeletons and several prosthetics platforms, movement monitoring devices and immersive work cell setups. This will be complemented with UAVs and marine technology at Heriot Watt and immersive virtual reality systems connecting the two sites. More info at:
Please contact Professor Sethu Vijayakumar ROBOTARIUM co-Director with any enquiries regarding the UoE site of the Centre.
